The conference, themed "innovation-driven internet development for the benefit of all - building a community of common future in cyberspace" took place in the river town of Wuzhen, eastern China's Zhejiang province, from Nov 16 to 18.

Hor said President Xi's visit to Cambodia is of historical significance and the Cambodian side is ready to deepen all-round pragmatic cooperation with China and enhance bilateral friendship.
When meeting with Hawke, Liu said China and Australia, as major countries in the Asia-Pacific region, share wide common interests in terms of internet development and governance.
Both sides should be devoted to promoting exchanges in such fields as cyberspace interconnection, internet governance and cyber security, said Liu.
Noting that cooperation between Australia and China ranges widely, benefits both sides and has huge potential, Hawke said he believes China will continue to be a contributor to world internet development.
When meeting with Aberle, Liu hoped that Qualcomm would deepen exchanges and cooperation with Chinese companies, so as to jointly make contributions to internet innovation and the building of a community of common destiny in cyberspace.
